    It's also a surprisingly simple rig - a brined/dyed whole herring rigged with a single 4/0 barbless hook. What could be easier?

    Cool pictures. I prefer a double hook mooching rig for trolling with herring. Will lose a lot of fish that only half bite with the setup shown.

    Agreed, he quite obviously had that herring rig dangling off the corkline...

    Indeed….

    The hangback 4/0 trailer is not in the frame, but is most definitely tied in about 8 inches behind the tow hook.

    Of greater significance is the way the whole herring is prepared for trolling. Yes, brined and dyed UV blue but even more important is how elegantly the brined bait is rigged for the ultimate whole herring spin. Tip of the hat to the folks in Old Harbor where I learned to spin a whole bait with a new (to me) twist … in this case the Old Harbor Bend.

    This is achieved with a wooden kabob skewer to impart about a 1/8 radius bend to the whole bait, orienting the belly on the outside radius.

    My favored hook placement from the tip of the mandible to the dorsum of the skull closes the mouth and ensures a durable solid purchase to tow the bait. My signature free-dangling hangback trailer seals the deal at the time of the strike.

    Just add water…. and watch it rotate on axis at incredible RPM's to produce a tight drill-bit spin that rivals that of a precision-cut bait…. only WAY more durable.

    I've now adapted this rig to whole anchovies as well. Couldn't be happier with the results.

    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing. I kind of follow the explanation but would love to get more detail. If I understand you right the bait is bent/curved top to bottom (as shown in the first pic) rather than side to side???

    Correct.

    This is achieved by maintaining the 1/8 radius bend with your hands while inserting a wooden BBQ skewer or magnum toothpick passed thru the anal vent and directed to the dorsal meat where it inserts into the head. Imagine creating just enough bend that 8 of these little devils arranged on a board would form a nice big circle.

    I like the look of that rig. I hope after one of those nasty hatchery fish gits hooked and the bait is shook free a wild king doesn't eat it and choke on the toothpick. Nice fish Doc, looks like good eats. I hope you have a great year.

    Most definitely had a GREAT year! But at what cost?

    Doc,
    I would love a Youtube video, or a photographic step-by-step. And did I miss what kind of dye you use?

    Actually that herring was marinated in a buddy's brine. I think he said it was Bad Azz Blue with UV from ProCure.

    I actually prefer the more natural subtle blue-white brilliance imparted by good ol' Mrs Stewart's.

    If I'm going to dye them, I like the fluo chartruse green UV for a change up.

    Sorry, I'm video-challenged
